This Saturday June 05TH 2021 is my 54TH birthday ! I was born at 10:13 PM CDT in Room 340 at Selma Baptist Hospital in Selma Alabama. My Dad was stationed at nearby Craig Air Force Base at the time. We were there until early in 1969, and then my Dad left the USAF to begin a new career in life insurance. We moved to Greenbelt Maryland (just outside of Washington D.C.). That’s where my Dad was born and raised (D.C. and adjacent Prince Georges County Maryland). He lived there for the first 22 years of his life. After graduating from Bladensburg High School (Class Of 1959) he attended 4 years at the University Of Maryland in College Park. He joined the USAF in 1963.
Fast forward to June 05TH 1971 (also a Saturday), and here’s the scene with me – 50 years ago:
